J.MOSES

a.k.a. Jason Morgan

J. Moses is the musical alias of Portland-ish native singer-songwriter Jason Morgan.
He's a sleeper. Some might say he's a bit late to the game.
Raised in the hills of Clatskanie, OR his earliest musical exposure consisted mainly of Metal (Heavy and Hair Band courtesy of his older brother) and 70's AM Gold (courtesy of the family station wagon radio and cardboard box of 45's).
Sometime in the waning years of his 30's he made the rare decision to take a mid life stab at being a singer-songwriter. This inevitably led to the often daunting process of "putting a band together". So he took the path of least resistance by recruiting three friends, all of whom were already longtime active Portland musicians.

 

Enter guitarist Joel Roth (The Low Bones, Daystar), bass guitarist Kip Lindig (WhistlePunk!, Timber County, Barn Burners), and drummer Chris Hutton (RootJack, Hong Kong Banana). Together they make up The Ragged Sunday, which is no accident. Many of their musical themes are rooted in salvation. Deliverance from lost love, broken promises, and the feeling that we are all just hanging on by a thread. Redemption found by embracing our addictions, our fears, and the inherent vice that is our own mortality.
J. Moses and the Ragged Sunday is "rootsy storytelling with a modern classic rock edge". Imagine the music of Crazy Horse, Springsteen, Haggard and The Band getting baptized in a moody Pacific Northwest rainstorm, circa 1992.
